Solution

The correct option is D Walking bare footed
Hookworm eggs are passed in the faeces of an infected person. If the infected person defecates outside (near bushes, in a garden, or field) of if the faeces of an infected person are used as fertilizer, eggs are deposited on soil. They can then mature and hatch, releasing larvae (immature worms). The larvae mature into a form that can penetrate the skin of humans. Hookworm infection is mainly acquired by walking barefoot on contaminated soil.

So, the correct answer is 'Walking bare footed'.
